Giant's Causeway Tour

There are many generic, run-of-the-mill Giant’s Causeway tours out there. Why not treat yourself and do a Finn McCools Giant’s Causeway tour? We are the experts on Northern Ireland that will take you off the beaten track to locations our competitors do not even know about. Taking routes through the mountains because the views are spectacular. To not even mention showing the best coastal drives around and doing stops that is exclusive to Finn McCools.

Our tours are very well planned out and structured to make the most of your time and show you as much as possible in Northern Ireland.

We will not waste your time by giving you an hour and a half in Belfast just so our guides can get commission from extra tours offered. We will rather spend that time taking you to more locations and making your holiday one to remember forever.

For our Giant's Causeway tour, meet your guide in central Dublin in early morning to start your trek to Belfast where you will spend approximately 45 minutes. Belfast has a very compact city center as a legacy of the Troubles, also known internationally as the Northern Ireland conflict.

The next stop, the Dark Hedges, will be a 10-15-minute stop. The Dark Hedges, made famous as a filming location of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, were planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to their mansion Gracehill Manor. It is now the most photographed natural phenomenon in Northern Ireland.

Next, you will make a quick 5-minute photo stop at arguably some of the most picturesque ruins in all of Ireland, Dunluce Castle. This is the type of location that makes even a picture taken on your smartphone look like a pictures taken by a professional.

Then you'll get to experience the beautiful location of Giant's Causeway for at least 1.5 hours. This must-see World Heritage Site is Northern Ireland's most popular visitor attraction, and for good reason. Magnificent seascape and of course the awe-inspiring hexagonal/polygonal stone columns that form the legendary causeway itself, some of which reach 40 feet (12 meters) into the air. The Giant’s Causeway was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986. Here you can have a sit down lunch if you prefer. The extra lunch stop time is added into the Causeway stop.

The brave will have the opportunity to cross the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (crossing fee included in the tour). Carrick-a-Rede is an abandoned fishing island located just a few miles from the Giant’s Causeway. This 90-ft deep, 60-ft (27m, 18m) wide chasm is traversed by a traditionally built rope bridge which rewards the daring visitor with arguably the best views in the country. Spend approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes there.

You then get back on the coastal route and go through beautiful coastal towns like Ballycastle and Cushendun where you will enjoy fantastic view of islands just of the coast like Sheep Island, Rathlin Island or maybe even a glimpse of Scotland.

After that, you will stop for 20 minutes at the closest point between Ireland and Scotland, Cushendun, which is also the last stop before returning to Belfast. The guide will tell you the story of the statue of Johann the Goat.

Another unique part of the tour will be going across the Glens of Antrim with amazing panoramic views, instead of driving around them, on the way back to Belfast.

You will return to Dublin at approximately 8:30pm.
Pick-up is at 6:45 am, outside Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Parnell Square N, Dublin 1
